Toasty sweet scotch ale. Tastes slightly lactic and off. Some toffee raisin and caramel with a bit of nutty malt. Finishes too sweet with light tartness.

Very dark pour with a decent creamy tan head. Nose of sweet raisins and a hint of smoke. Tastes of roasted malts. Smoke only seems to come through in the finish and lingers on the palate.

12 oz bottle courtesy of secret santa. Thanks. Pours a dark brown color with a big foamy beige head that has excellent retention. The aroma is dark fruits, trace of peat and roasted barley. The taste features toffee, raisins, nuts, ann a bit of brown sugar. The palate is full and creamy and the carbonation is medium. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Very impressive malt bomb

Nice !!!!!!! Pours a beautiful mahogany color with minimal head retention. Aroma is very subtle. Perfect malty butterscotch like taste that lingers in the after taste. A year round offering big IMHO perfect for a late spring or early fall day.

Nice Scotch Ale. Light brown colored. Sweet, peaty, smoky, roasted malts. Taste has a sweet molasses presence that blends real well. Overall, lighter body than I expected which worked really well. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Pours clear, deep and dark with flashes of crimson. The aroma is a malty mingling of milk chocolate, caramel and a slight note of vanilla. Medium-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is malty and moderately bitter - unsweetened cocoa and a hint of caramel. Excellently-balanced. Finishes bittersweet - a touch more bitter than sweet. I’m getting no smoke out of this. Thanks to biggsbowler for supplying the bottle!

On tap @ B&D Burgers / Savannah GA --- Clear, very dark ruby brown with a misty head cover, lots of bits and pieces of lace. Taste is roasted malt that stays pure, adding semi-sweet toffee midway through. This nearly turns it sweet, but bitters keep the finish in check. Actually quite good,a solid wee heavy.k
